So, when is the revolution? Will the black flag fly high soon? ;)

Edit: forgot to write flag in the sentence.

Hahaha! Speaking of the revolution, what self-respecting anarchist takes to the streets without a pair of vintage Chucks?

Also, working away on my Haqqislam stuff. My first Ghulam, the prototype for the rest of them. The tan parts of his uniform are done, and I like the way the shading and highlighting came out. The green on his boots is done, and the shoulder pads, padded sections of the arms and legs, and various straps will eventually be that color (for now they're just base coated).
Image

I also started working on a Hunzakut sniper. I decided that since the Hunzakuts have the CH:Camouflage skill, he should be, well, camouflaged! To that end, I did his uniform in a sort of MultiCam pattern. The grey is just a base coat, the final part will be much lighter and should look much better. I liked the grey padding on the one on CB's site, so I figured I'd keep that look.

Great stuff! You're great at painting camouflaged uniforms!

BTW, I meant black flag in my last post, but you've got it. I don't want that other people think I wanted to throw black persons with a catapult, so that they "fly high". :oops: I fixed it.

If you're flying the Black Flag you'd better have Henry Rollins and Greg Ginn in there somewhere :)

No pics tonight, but I'm still working away on my Infinity stuff. So much fine detail! My 20/0 brush is getting a workout.

Cross-posting from this month's Big Brawl, the theme of which was Mr. or Mrs. Fix-It. I decided to do both, and have been working on a Ghulam Doctor and a Najjarun Engineer for Infinity. The role of both of these minis in the game is to fix or repair other units (drones for him, troopers for her).

Because Kovlovsky asked in the other thread: in order to reduce the absurd cheesecakity of the mini (with her low-rise pants and exposed midriff), I decided to paint her as if she were wearing something form-fitting yet practical, like Under Armor or its futuristic equivalent under her uniform jacket. Bonus points if you can name the fictional sci-fi doctor on which she is based!

The Najjarun Engineer. Given how often my remotes keep getting blasted to smithereens, I figure this guy is going to see some heavy use.

The pair together:

These are my first completed Infinity minis and I'm really happy with the way they turned out. I am especially happy with the color scheme for the base (although the lighting washes out a little of the color variation visible in person) There is a LOT of detail on these minis, and mad-props to Corvus Belli for sculpts that look good and were a lot of fun to paint.

I like what you did with the models. Good call on the doctor.

Aaaaaah ok I see. Yea, it's kind of a particular idea to go to war with a shirt exposing the belly. It's not really practical when you have to hit the dirt in a wooden or rocky area. :P

They are really well painted, but I must admit I don't recognise the reference unfortunately.

I have bought the first two on Steam, but I haven't played them yet! Damn me! Ironically, I bought and read the prequel novel about Sovereign and how it was discovered. The next novel is half read. It's about Cerberus I think, but it's far in my mind. I will get through them one day!
